95 Wine Enthusiast:                                                                                                       "The Roederer style has become drier as the fruit has become riper and this finely balanced Champagne is an excellent example. Taut and textured, with great freshness allied to the mineral and fruit tones, this wine just hints at tannins as it moves towards maturity. Drink from 2022."

93 Wine Spectator:                                                                                                 "Rapierlike acidity creates a mouthwatering frame for flavors of steeped peach and raspberry fruit, lemon pastry cream and Marcona almond in this harmonious rosé Champagne, which is racy and finely knit, with lovely hints of licorice, saline and orchard blossom riding the satiny mousse on the long finish. Disgorged summer 2019. Drink now through 2034."

Winemaker notes:

The 2014 Louis Roederer Brut Rose Pink has a pink hue with attractive golden tints. Beautiful beads of soft, even bubbles. An intense, fresh and fruity bouquet, reminiscent of a tangy red fruit tart (wild strawberry, blueberry), slightly sweet yet underpinned by more concentrated, jammy and citrus notes. The aromatic complexity comes through after a few swirls in the glass giving us a medley of spice, warm cinnamon and peppers.Fleshy attack dominated by ripe, crunchy, plump red fruit that brings depth and creaminess. The fruity structure is gradually elongated by a chalky, mineral freshness that creates a lingering sensation of lightness and harmony on the finish.

Blend: 63% Pinot Noir, 37% Chardonnay
